Client: Ames Laboratory Description : Added new capabilities to the osgBullet physics toolkit to perform aggressive shape-retaining simplifications on novel models to produce efficient shapes that can be used for high-performance collision/physics calculations without compromising the overall shape and extent of the objects. A “short edge” technique was devised from scratch by AlphaPixel to work
Client: Ames Laboratory Description : Add specialized GIS clipping capability to Minerva GIS’s libraries to permit regions of interest to be selected and clipped against a large database of landcover polygons to generate data and summaries for further analysis.
Client: Ames Laboratory Description : Custom code to highlight OSG Nodes (specified by NodePaths) with a screen-space oriented bounding circle, annotated by a text object. Developed for in-house use, will be released as F/OSS software as part of osgWorks.
Client: Pelican Mapping Description : AlphaPixel successfully ported the osgEarth virtual globe toolkit to iPhone/iPad/iPod iOS architecture utilizing OpenGL ES2 (which lacks Fixed Function Pipeline capabilities). We completed integration with iOS’s Objective C core classes and built a touch-based manipulator and worked through many challenging limitations of the mobile platform.
